    You would need about 110 UMS on the exam out of 120 for an A* overall
    You would need 80UMS for an A
    50 UMS for a B

    And so on...

    These are based on last years boundaries

    40 is the A* boundary for the either of the two courseworks so the two combined will put you on the A* boundary. So I'm guessing since the exam was a bit harder than last year it will 65/80 for A* so you will need to get 65 marks in the exam but I would suggest aiming for higher since they may not change the grade boundary

    Based on last year you would need exactly 60/80 to get the A* grade

    Is that overall or just for the exam?

    39/45 is A* not A.
    39 RAW = 81 UMS
    41 RAW =85 UMS

    270 UMS gives you an A* in total

    So subject to moderation, you would need 104 UMS minimum in the exam to get an A*

    Last year, 104 UMS was 50/80. However, be aware that the grade boundaries have changed significantly over recent years. In 2013, you would have needed around 66, and around 56 in 2015

    Hope that helps

    Although slightly late since I received my GCSE results last year, I appreciate the help. In the end I got an A*

    Oh, didn't see the date 😂
    I got very similar C/A scores to you, so I'm hoping the grade boundaries don't massively fluctuate and that I can also get an A*
